Sunday, (DATE) is our annual “Fill-a-Pew” Sunday and we are so excited! This is a wonderful opportunity to invite your unchurched family and friends to a service designed especially to reach them.

Well, it's that time of year again… the Big Game! At First Christian Church, we view this time as a wonderful time of outreach to our community, and we want you to be part of it.
As the two best football teams come together to go head-to-head on the field, we will be meeting in the Family Life Center to watch the game together and have a great time of fellowship with more food than you can imagine.

Luke 2:12 – This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 16 – So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

Rev. _____________ will be ministering on Sunday morning, and will continue the services each night beginning at 7:00 PM.
